  1. The table gives the equilibrium adult female population sizes achieved after the interventions plotted on Fig. 3. The associated critical values of the adult female population size below which malaria transmission will cease, is given in parenthesis (M’, obtained from Eq. 22); note that the parameters ρl and ρp do not affect adult mosquito mortality so the target population size is unaffected by their value). Note that male adult survival ρd has no impact on female population size so is not included in this analysis
